Grand Junction Basement Waterproofing

If you have a wet basement or crawl space at your Grand Junction home, you know not only does it feel and smell nasty, but it also steals value from your home. In fact, it’s much more of a nuisance than some in the area may think, thanks to the weather conditions and Grand Junction’s unique bentonite clay soil.  

While some basements and crawl spaces in Grand Junction stay dry by keeping up on general home maintenance like cleaning the gutters and ensuring a proper grade, it is far more likely that homes experience water entering at some point. And if you have water in your basement or crawl space once, chances are it won’t be the last time.  

While there are plenty of DIY solutions online, the truth is, they rarely work and can end up costing you a lot of headaches and money for no, or temporary, success rates. Groundworks Grand Junction has the proven history and knowledge to get the job done right the first time. They have been working with homeowners like you since 2005, and their inspectors and technicians have a unique understanding of the area, including the soil and often dry weather conditions.  

They know the combination of dry, even drought prone, conditions combined with the highly fraught bentonite soil can spell disaster and have proven products and solutions to withstand everything the Grand Junction area can throw at it.  

Contact your local experts at Groundworks Grand Junction to schedule your free, no-obligation inspection. Our team performs a thorough inspection and informs you of their findings. High-pressure sales tactics are never an issue because our inspectors aren’t salesmen. They work with you to solve your home’s unique needs.

What Causes Basement Waterproofing Problems?

Your basement may or may not be a place you visit frequently, but regardless, its health is vital to your home’s structural integrity and the health of your household.  

The reasons to deal with water issues quickly are evident if your basement is a finished living space. However, if it or your crawl space is an unfinished storage space, it can often be an out of sight, out of mind. Regardless, the air in your basement travels through your home to the first and second story, so any mold or mildew spores find their way into your family’s lungs. These spores cause problems for healthy adults but can be dangerous for those with respiratory issues, the elderly, and young children.  

We understand if you’ve been putting off repairing your wet basement. When your family and neighbors all have similar issues, it can make the problem seem normal, but it is anything but.  

The problem is frequent because of Grand Junction’s problematic bentonite soil and weather conditions. When these two factors combine, they spell disaster for homeowners with basements or crawl spaces.  

Bentonite soil contains very high amounts of clay, meaning it soaks up any available moisture and expands in size; however, during the dry seasons, the clay shrinks drastically, leaving voids. This type of constant movement is harmful to your basement or crawl space walls, causing cracks and allowing water to enter. Once water enters, mold and mildew grow quickly. Along with a musty odor, mold also steals value from your home by weakening the structure and causing a host of secondary problems like sloping and spongy floors.  

To avoid these additional repair costs, it’s important to address problems quickly. Although it’s unreasonable to change the soil or the weather at your Grand Junction home, the local experts have developed solutions to mitigate these problems and stop the water before it causes problems.  

Our team of inspectors and installers live in your town and will work with you to find a customized solution for your unique home’s needs. From interior drains to dehumidification, our products and services come with long-term warranties to allow Grand Junction homeowners to know they made the right choice. Contact us to schedule your free inspection.  

Our Patented Basement Waterproofing Solutions

Groundworks Grand Junction knows life is busy, and finding time to worry about basement waterproofing can be a hassle. Our friendly staff understands and will educate you on the problem and how we will solve it, so you don’t have to. Below are some of the solutions they may suggest to repair your unique home.  

Sump Pump in Basement 3D

Basement Sump Pump 

When it comes to choosing the right sump pump for your home, the decision is actually more important than first glance. Your home is unique, and you and your inspector will decide on the best model to meet your needs, but know not all sump pumps are created equal. Since installing a sump pump alone won’t solve your waterproofing goals, choosing the right sump pump to accompany your additional work is vital. It’s also important to take into consideration the amount of water you’re experiencing and how frequently you lose power during storms when you need your sump pump most. You and your inspector can walk through all these conditions.  

Groundworks offers several pump options, with our top-of-the-line sump pump including three pumps of ultimate protection. Two primary pumps do the heavy lifting, with a third battery-operated pump in the case of a power outage, perhaps from a tripped breaker or storm.  

Basement vapor barrier 3D

Basement Vapor Barrier

With Grand Junction’s bentonite soil, water commonly enters from the basement walls or near where the floor and the wall meet. Although our interior drain system will capture the water and drain it to the sump pump that will pump it out of and away from the home before it can cause problems, you may still be left with dirty-looking, stained walls. AquaStop WallSeal™ is the solution. This clean, white vapor barrier is installed on basement walls to seal out moisture and provide a bright, clean finish. This is really the best option if you are looking to finish your basement in the future as well.   

Dehumidifier 3D

Basement Dehumidifier  

Similar to a sump pump, a basement dehumidifier cannot stand alone as your primary waterproofing solution. It is, however, a powerful tool to keep the moisture in the air under control. Consider a powerful dehumidifier if your waterproofing system is installed and you and your inspector are still noticing higher than healthy moisture levels. Groundworks dehumidifiers remove up to 100 pints per day and filter more than 280 cubic feet per minute. When considering a dehumidifier, be sure you’re purchasing a unit powerful enough to get the job done.

Jeff, Isaac and Alire were a great crew. They worked hard and got my crawlspace encapsulation done in three days. I believe that the tech they used will solve my moisture problem. Although it has not been fully tested we can already feel a difference. Only drawback I can see is that the drainage pump is wimpy. This summer I will change it out for something more substantial like a sump pump.

They quickly realized the nature of the service we need during the initial call and helped avoiding a much more expensive remedy. They had their specialist (Nicholas Langdon) do a site visit and accurately determine the nature of the remedy, and scheduled the repairs. The crew showed up on time, we’re very professional and very helpful during the 2 days of repairs, walked us through all the work at every step, and Nick worked closely with our plumber for all the pre & post plumbing related work. The crew completed the job on time and fully cleaned the premises of all debris and left the place very clean. All told, and excellent service, and excellent relationship management by Nick and the crew, and an excellent professionalism throughout from the planning to execution to completion.I will use this service again, and would recommend them to anyone needing foundation repair & waterproofing work. Well done.

We used Groundworks to put in an interior drain and sump pump when our foundation started leaking into our garage. Mike our sales manager was prompt, thorough, and professional. Our installation crew of Isaac, Kevin, and Blake were fabulous. They arrived on time, communicated well to set expectations, and were extremely professional and courteous. They did great work in less time than estimated, left the site very clean, and even took care of a few small tasks that should have been our responsibility as the homeowner. Appointment set up and communication with the main office was equally impressive. Would recommend!

Blake Weaver, Tristin Hurt and Chance Ener were on time, courteous, and knowledgeable. They even took the time to answer my many questions and cleaned up after themselves once the job was done. Which, by-the-way, they completed a day early. I highly recommend them.

Foundation Repair of Western Colorado performed a crawl space encapsulation for me in July of 2023. I met with Mike Z and once we talked through the issues and resolutions it was clear he knew what to do and how to provide the best solution. The 3 man crew; Blake W, Scott W and Michael M that came here to perform the encapsulation were absolutely great to work with. I was explained of the work to be done, how it was going to be done and they did exactly that. They protected my home from foot traffic and clean up as well at the end. The work done was neat, clean and completed in a timely manner. My hats off to them and would highly recommend this company for your project.

We had work done to help level our attached garage. Scary for us, we have never had to have work like this done before. Chad and his crew (Jake, James, Martin) exceeded our expectations. The work was done on time (quicker, in fact) and the wokrsite cleaned. Chad took the fear factor out by communicating often during the process. Both with us and the company to make sure all concerns were addressed. We are grateful.
